There's nothing quite as fattening as stupidity.
At my mid-week scale peek, I saw that I was on track for another gain. Another gain? Are you kidding me? Are you freakin’ kidding me?
I really dislike tracking my eats because I feel pretty strongly that I'm trying to make changes in my diet and myself that transcend keeping up with every crappy calorie that passes my lips.
I want to feel confident that I can live my life making sensible choices and eating a little more mindfully.
It's a nice sentiment, but easier declared than delivered.
I was blaming my recent scale slowdown on my strength training, but the simple truth is that a pipe with a lot of little leaks in it can do as much damage as one big leak. Maybe even moreso because those teeny-tiny leaks are harder to notice, more difficult to contain.
Portion control, sneaky snacks, grab and go munchies, they’ve all played a part in my recent weight woes, but what I’m really struggling to correct are the late- night yum-yums that aren't necessarily unhealthy, but can sabotage me on the scale. Those are the issues i'm trying to rein in this week.
Just trying to be a little bit smarter about how I make my way through the day.
I've come a long, long way.
Long way left to go.
